It felt hard to believe, watching Rory McIlroy’s dominant performance to win the Duetsche Bank Championship on Monday, that this was his first win of 2016.
Trailing by six shots at the start of the final round he won by two shots from Surrey’s Paul Casey with a 65 that looked easy. It was hard to believe that he has had a crisis with his outter, he looked supremely confident. Changing from a Nike blade putter to a Scotty Cameron mallett and working intensively with putting coach Phil Kenyon has restored his confidence. It is only the second tournament since he teamed up with Kenyon and he is now talking about winning the FedEx Cup. “I’m really excited going i to the final part of the season” he said “hopefully its momentum I can bring to Team Europe to help them win”.
